content. in a digital environment. they are interesting -- they are interested in supporting brands. i think they are interested and still willing to pay for experience. experiences are different than access. to be a little bit more precise about this, the old model used to be you give us $35 and we give you 20 issues of print. for a very long time, until the web and all the business models were disrupted. now, our model is you give us $35 and you get print but you also get our experiential products. it did -- the digital colom is all the things i was talking about before. unlimited access, commenting, several things in that list. you get access to subscriber- only events, which we are doing at least once a month in major cities and some secondary markets, ann arbor, austin, places where there are a lot of people interested in the type of journalism we do. whether or not that will be enough is an open question pri is certainly part of the trend where journalists are not just researching and writing. they are researching, writing, promoting, engaging in dialogue, and being important par

learning environment that fosters their success. each of us is here today because we are seeking answers. answers about how to address one of the largest impediment to achieving this goal. bullying. i would like to present you just a few steps, if that is okay. nearly half of middle school principals who participated in a national bullying survey indicated that this issue ranked as one of the top five challenges in their school. we are indeed making progress into dispelling the myth that bullying is merely a rite of passage. currently, 49 states have implemented anti-bullying politics. according to the national bullying survey, only one in six principals report that the number of bullying incidents has decreased significantly as a result of their bullying initiatives. despite our best efforts bullying continues to plague our students and we can have it in our schools. as educators and participants in today's summit, we are well aware that providing the skills and tools that promote safety and well-being among our students is no less important than preparing them for a great acade

this great nation. our soldiers today operate in a most uncertain and unpredictable environment. it is the most dynamic and unpredictable i have seen in my over 36 years of service. unlike post-conflict drawdowns, where we have a termination of conflict due to a police treaty or a political decline of a superpower, instead today we have 81,000 soldiers deployed, including 50,000 fighting in afghanistan, and thousands of others in kuwait, in the horn of africa. over 91,000 soldiers are stationed in over 160 countries. we have been in a continuous state of war in the last 12 years, the longest in our history. but today, in my opinion, the greatest threat to our national security is the fiscal uncertainty resulting from a lack of predictability in the budget cycle, a series of continuing resolutions, a threat of sequestration hanging over our heads, our country's inability to put its fiscal house in order compromise is the full readiness of the joint force, army, and will impact our ability to provide our security to our nation. we have two problems as i sit here today. we have an immedia

perceive an electoral environment biased and highly competitive and women remain the primary caretakers of the home and children and are more complicated considerations than men do and quickly, where to go from here, important actions to take. the one thing to suggest of people running organizations, is recruitment matters. it's one thing that equalizes things. and men and women are recruited heavily and recruitment closes that gap and if you get to enough women and suggest run, run, run, you should do this. also, spread acquireness about women's electoral success because there's broad scale belief it's harder for women to run and may be harder in many ways but when you get out there, it's not harder to raise money and it's not harder to get votes and it's not harder to win and many women in 30's, 40's and 50's perceive it's more difficult to do that or feel that way. i think i'm cutting it off like there. i'm at my 12-minute mark. thank you very much.
